7 sacred songs in honor of Memorial Day

'God Bless America'

One of the major patriotic songs in the United States, "God Bless America" came from the mind of prolific composer and songwriter Irving Berlin.

"God Bless America" was first published in 1938, originally meant as a peace song in response to the rising tide of Fascism in Europe.

First performed in November of that year, Berlin had the royalty money from the song donated to the Boy Scouts of America and the Girl Scouts.
